I want to have CoolSculpting done on the back of my arms.

Will it cause saggy skin with the volume loss of fat?

Coolsculpting has been very successful in our clinic for treatment of the upper arms, and has not led to saggy skin. This seems to be because the skin on the arms is fairly tight to begin with. If there is a lot of saggy skin over the area to be treated, it is unlikely to get better. I would recommend that you have a consultation with a Coolsculpting expert, who can assess your body in person, and give you a realistic idea of your potential to benefit from treatment. Coolsculpting is very good at treating pockets of “subcutaneous fat”, the fat just under the skin. If you can “grab hold of” an area, it is likely that it can be treated effectively with Coolsculpting. Approximately 20-25% of fat cells in the area are killed with each cycle of treatment, so many clients may wish to have a number of treatment cycles to the same area, spaced at a few months apart, to maximise the treatment effect.
